Afternoon Tea & Celeriac Soup



I took my time picking out an outfit to wear on Tuesday. As I would be receiving a guest for tea later in the afternoon. My friend S. would be coming and I decided on my rose printed cardigan with almost matching trousers.

On the road...




Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. I haven't been feeling too good lately.
Right after Easter my stomach turned into an ocean in full swing. Waves crashed agains the walls of my tummy and gave me a greenish color that was anything but charming. I felt seasick and my head has been pounding for days. Now I'm finally well enough to get behind the computer and catch up with you. A little...
